STATE SEEKS WAIVER ON FEDERAL SCHOOL LAW

New Jersey will consider asking the federal government for a waiver from the No Child Left Behind law requirements. The Press of Atlantic City reports that New Jersey is responding to President Barack Obama’s announcement on Monday, that states can apply for waivers until Congress reworks the law. One provision that is causing concern is the requirement that 100 per cent of students in a school pass state tests by 2014, or the school would be considered failing and in need of improvement. Reform on the the law will include more accountability for individual students, teachers and principals.
